Cheers to local pol Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz (D–Sheepshead Bay) for his generosity to Kingsborough Community College. The giving pol presented the Manhattan Beach institution with a $400,000 check to support the building of a Student Union and Intercultural Center.

The initiative is part of Kingsborough’s commitment to create and maintain a safe, inclusive, and accessible space for the college and nearby community. When completed, it will include an information center and staffed referral hub, gathering and programming spaces for students and faculty, an outdoor plaza, an interactive bulletin board and a Welcome Way showcasing the many languages and nationalities represented at Kingsborough.

In addition, a dedicated interfaith room — known as the Common Ground room — will offer interfaith programming in conjunction with Kingsborough’s Holocaust Center.

“Kingsborough is Brooklyn’s only community college and is recognized nationally as a leader in public education. I’m proud to support the creation of the Student Union and Intercultural Center, a facility that will help promote dialogue and tolerance and move forward the college’s commitment to be an inspiring, energizing, and welcoming place for Kingsborough’s diverse community and the community at large,” said Cymbrowitz.

Peter Cohen, Kingsborough’s interim president, thanked the rep and said, “We are delighted to once again have the support and friendship of Assemblyman Cymbrowitz,” he said. “Through his efforts, our partnership will ensure the work of the Student Union and Intercultural Center. This collaboration will continue to bring our diverse college community together for the benefit of all.”

Kingsborough Community College [2001 Oriental Blvd. in Manhattan Beach, (718) 368–5000].
